A wary widow.

No stranger to love, Lady Desmond is well-versed in the heartache that can accompany it. Burned by her traitorous heart again and again, Cass has determined her life will include only what she can control—and has made her work as the proud proprietress of the Revelry’s Tempest gaming hall her sole mission.

A reluctant viscount.

Inheriting an English title was not something American Rorrick Trowlson wanted in life, nor was the mess that came with the estate. His brother’s mess. A mess he now has to clean up. But to do so, he needs a tract of land his brother flippantly lost in a stupid bet at the Revelry’s Tempest.  

A past that needs to be righted.

After he mistakes her for a madam of a brothel, Cass wants nothing to do with the brash American—until she realizes he may be just the key to righting her deepest regret. She strikes a bargain with Rorrick—take her to America and she will sign the land back to him. As the spark between them quickly turns into a flame, Cass resists, as she had sworn long ago to never be careless with her heart again. Once, twice, she had been a fool—but three times would be the death of her. But can a brazen American with a new title batter down the stalwart defenses of a widowed countess?

Note: The books in the Revelry's Tempest series by K.J. Jackson are each stand-alone stories and can be read individually in any order. These historical romances are set in the Regency and Victorian eras, and do not shy away from scenes with steamy heat, occasional naughty language, and moments that might possibly make you squirm.

A Lovely Adventure
I just turned the last page, yet I do not want to let go of this story. Spanning two continents, this is a journey of life's hardships and disappointments that slowly turn into hope and love. Cass, Lady Desmond, allows herself only to focus on her work as the proprietress of a gaming hall, the Revelry's Tempest. Having lived through heartache a couple of times, she relies upon the only constant in her life, work. Rorrick Trowlson, an american comes to England to settle his dead brother's estate, but also wants to find answers. He confronts Cass and wants the land back his brother lost at the Tempest, that was part of the estate. Having deep regret not long past, Cass needs to go to America to right a wrong that has been on her conscious for several years. Seeing Rorrick as a means to that end, she strikes a bargain with him to take her there in exchange for the land. What follows is a wonderful story of finding the truth, dealing with past heartache and righting some wrongs. But also dealing with the mistrust that had built up with Cass and finding a way to trust her heart as sparks fly between her and Rorrick on their journey. This book is part of a series, although it can be read alone and I think this is my favorite. I love everything this author writes but I truly felt my heart engaged in this story. Do yourself a favor and don't miss it!

This is the magic
This is it!!!!!!! This is the best of the best. kJ has pulled this story from her soul. “ the wonder of it is only eclipsed by the magnitude of it. That the possibility of anything one can imagine surrounds you”. A direct quote from the story. kJ has created more than a story, far more than a romance novel. She has created magic in the written word! This novel will stay with you for a long time. 5 stars. Lisa
